Just wanted to sign and say that your detailed research has been useful in finding out more about my Winder Family line, via my great x7 aunt Alice Winder b. 1797 and m. to William Cragg.

Greetings! I have viewed your genealogical research... many times... and finally decided to reach out. I am pursuing elusive ancestors and at present my Allmer (Almer) line from Worms, Russia and Paris, Bessarabia. In particular, I am trying to zero in on the location of Hohenkirch (Hohenkirchen, Hohenkrieg, Ohsukirchen) as it is variously spelled in online documents. Would love to converse... Cheryl

By chance, my husband did a genealogy-related search on Google for "Lustrupdal" and found your family site in the results. It looks like the Tyge Jørgensen BRUUN in your tree is my 3rd-great grandfather. I'm descended from Thomas Jensen BRUUN, the son of Tyge and brother of your Bodil Marie TYGESEN. We visited Denmark a few years back and met BRUUN family in Ribe we hadn't connected with before who showed us a published family genealogy. If you don't already have it as a source, it's available on FamilySearch (in Danish, so there's a bit of translating to do). It has provided insight into my Danish heritage & family that we didn't have before - including close cousins who are also in the US that I never knew about. Now it looks like there/s a Canadian connection as well - though a little more distant, cousin-wise.

I'm not sure we can add anything to your tree, but I'm happy to share what we have if you're interested.

Hi there, I am writing from Australia; from the small town of Cygnet on the island of Tasmania. I have tried the email on this page but it doesn't work?

My 90 year old mother, in Cambridgeshire is seriously ill. Because of Covid 19 I am unable to visit her. But we are chatting on the phone about family history. While there is still time I would love to try to shed some light on an enduring mystery that has blighted her life from early childhood.

Her father was half Norwegian and he hailed from Carnforth. He had the somewhat unusual name of Pedersen. Gerald Pedersen. I don't have a date of birth but simple mathematics would suggest he was probably born around 1900 - 1905.

My mother was only four when her mother, Olive Pedersen (nee Baker) left Gerald Pedersen and fled back to her family of origin in Sussex with a baby son and my three year old mother in tow.
Gerald Pedersen was never spoken of in the Baker family. Olive Baker Pedersen died in her mid nineties having never spoken of him again. My mother only saw him another two or three times; the last time at a railway station when she was about 17.

The only other information my mother has about her father, Gerald Pedersen is that he ran a Carnforth haulage company. His parents lived in Carnforth and at age 10 Valerie was sent to live with them . But she became homesick for Sussex and was returned to the care of the extended Baker family.

many thanks

I came across your site while doing research for the Bibby family especially the two sons who died in WW1. I am helping with research on the Liverpool Pals and had done a lot myself but have had a few extras from your site.

Hello Brenda. Have recently starting doing genealogy & also recently done DNA testing. Trying to make sense of the people in our past. Site was mentioned in an Ancestry message that I had sent to someone. A lot of work you have done! Just started looking at your site & has helped so far to establish where people are in our history. But I'm still looking & getting organized. I am daughter of Elmer Racho, granddaughter of Olga Fiedler, who married Gustave Racho, great granddaughter of Paulina Lobe who married August Fiedler. Thank you for doing a lot of very intensive searching. Pat

Hello again:

I have found a bit more information on Maria Jordan, the eldest daughter of Richard and Sarah. Maria married James Joseph McArron in Sussex, New Brunswick, Canada in 1834. They had one son, Robert, before James died. Maria married Thomas Boyd in 1840 in Studholm Parish, Kings County, NB. They had two sons, Richard Boyd (b. 1843) and John Jordan Boyd (b. 1847). Maria died and Thomas Boyd married another widow, named Alice. On the 1851 Census, Richard Boyd is with his father, stepmother and step-siblings. Maria's other two sons are with her parents, Richard and Sarah Jordan. As an adult, Robert McArron took the Jordan surname, since he was raised by his grandparents and never knew his own father. Richard Jordan names his grandson, Robert McCarron (spelling variation) in his will, along with his three youngest daughters: Caroline, Jane and Elizabeth and his granddaughter, Charlotte Gratitude McQuinn.

Hi Brenda, My father and I completed DNA tests 2 years ago and we are genetically connected to the Jordan Family of Beeford. I was happy to find your site. We are not sure what the connect is but my 2x great grandfather William Edward Griffin was born around 1813 in possibly Benningholme East Yorks and baptised in Swine by his mother Sarah Griffin (father unknown). I hope I can find the connection. Cheers!
